"Nurturing Ingenuity has many meanings for me in a very collective way. Reaching out from personal to outside experiences that I have encountered, and through the study of Psychology I find I want to understand addiction and addictive behaviors. This initially stemmed from growing up in a house with addiction, and abuse. I found that understanding it was something I was easily able to do, although as I emerged into adulthood I never personally engaged in addictive behaviors - I was an outside observer. In a way I felt very attached, almost an addict myself, but just thought observation and association and being very emotional towards those that have been afflicted since it always hit so close to home."
